Have you heard blogging called "pretty blogland?" I have, not a whole lot, but the term is used now and then. I do understand what they mean...still....
It always makes me feel foolish to take pleasure in the simple things, like new dishes, plaid wallpaper, etc, etc. especially when our world is upside down. There is so much tragedy going on and I know I have not mentioned it..or given my sentiments on my blog. I've exchange emails with a dear and valued friend and dispite our differences, it went amazingly well. :) More than one friend in fact. It's fun learning you don't have to "walk on eggs" with those that are really good friends.
I guess I thought it was pretty much understood that the world is saddened by all that is going on.
I just want to say that with all our differences politically and in so many other ways, showing respect is becoming more and more important and I'm seeing less and less of it. On TV, in the papers, everywhere. It's good to share one's views if you've a mind to do so, but I just cannot get into the unkind criticisms that sometimes goes along with our politic's and views on all matters.
It's has become difficult to watch the news. I often leave the room because I drive PH insane shouting at the television But, you know him. Patient Husband?
I like "pretty blogland" as it is sometimes called. It's a bit of normalcy in a sad world. It's fun to look at other people's homes and decor...and hear about their families and make friends. Why not?? I mean, isn't that what we all profess to value? Family life?
So those who would criticize "leaders" who are trying to cope with these terrible times, please try and be kind and give those under pressure a break. Don't perpetuate hate. What good does it do anyone.
Can you tell I'm up past my bedtime and getting a bit cranky? :)
Not sticking my head in the sand here, just so, so tired of the anger and hatred in the world.
